Re: the mini 260 printer do not print
go into the preferences of the printer, under the maintenance tab you will see head clean. clean the head and do a nozzle check. If you get nothing after two or three head claens, then the head is failing and will require replacing.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles. If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive. It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.
try checking the printer if it is installed properly, by going to the printers and faxes folder, right click lbp2900 and check its properties, verify if the port used is correct. check printer if it is online and also the usb connection. if everything is ok, try replacing the usb cable. if after replacing the cable and the printer still doesn't print, uninstall it and remove the connection. Restart the computer and begin installation, do not connect the printer unless the system prompt you to do so. Run test print after the installation.
If you figure this out PLEASE let me know! I'm having the same problem & can't find an answer anywhere! I've cleaned everything from the header to the rollers, I've done alignments, and NOTHING is working! THanks ~ Jamie Hippytrip@aol.com
Pretend you need to replace the ink again. Open the MP600 so the carriage moves to the center (just like your going to replace the ink). Than power off the printer. Remove the cartridges & look very closely at the copper contacts. (Sometime when you remove the protective tape some of the sticky tape leaves a residue. If you can not see anything than get some house hold alcohol & a couple cotton swabs. Dampen the cotton & wipe the copper contacts on the ink cartridge (Not the bottom) & the copper contacts inside the carriage. Let everything dry. Alcohol does not leave a residue. Return the ink cartridges (good tight fit). Close the lid & power on the printer. Print a test page. Left click once on the start button, slide up to & click on Printers and Faxes. The Printer and Faxes window will open. Right click once on your MP600 & left click on properties. Click Print a test page. If the colors did not come out correctly than run an alignment through your printer software & try again. Everything I mention above is based on the idea that your printer was running just fine but you ran out of ink. Please correct me if this is not the case.
Good Luck! If I can be of more service, just ask. Mike
